Meet the Author

H. BEAM PIPER (1904-1964) was an influential American Science Fiction and Mystery author during the great era of pulp sci-fi.
He is best known for his Terro-Human Future History series of stories and a shorter series of “Paratime” alternate history tales.

As a true autodidact, and gun collector, Piper’s work displays his extensive knowledge of history, science and firearms. Themes that frequently appear in his stories include, self reliance, space opera, time travel, planetary romance and law enforcement. Piper cut short his career and ended his life short via a self-inflicted gun wound, some say because he thought he was washed up. Sadly, his late agent's estate had neglected to inform Piper that several of his latest works had indeed been sold. If this would have convinced Piper not to pull the trigger, nobody knows. Various SF authors credit being inspired by H. Beam Piper’s writings.

    Worth it for Little Fuzzy

    The delightful tale of Little Fuzzy made up for the fact that the other stories anthologized here were ones I'd read before, in the 500 Stories bundle. They are all great classic science fiction stories, and I did reread a few before I discovered a couple of tales that were new to me. If you haven't yet met Verthan Vall and the Paratime Police, or Jack Holloway and his small furry friends, then you are in for a real treat!

    H. Beam Piper at his very best

    This reader has enough good sci-fi in it to last a couple of mouths, but I couldn't put it down.

    That's because I just recently discovered H. Beam Piper and his visionary take of this world and many alternative universes. No wonder they called his era the Golden Age of Science Fiction. I loved every page.
